It wasn't just manakins that Domi led us to as we circled the grounds and trails at Canopy Camp. We found a mix of birds both common and uncommon, familiar and unfamiliar.
Anyone who has birded the tropics has seen Blue-gray Tanagers. At one point these had been introduced to southern Florida and Peterson includes one in his main tanager plate. I'm a little surprised they haven't been re-established as widespread as they are farther south.
Double-banded Graytail is far less cosmopolitan, limited to tall second-growth forest of the Panama-Colombian border.
The first of many Roadside Hawks teed up appropriately alongside the road.
Yellow-breasted Flycatcher, like the graytail, is first encountered in Eastern Panama. Unlike the graytail, its range includes most of South America.
Birds weren't the only thing we saw, and while butterflies are less abundant in the dry season we were impressed by what we did see. This is probably some kind of Heliconius.
and finally what is a Golden-headed Gecko if I remember the name right.
